Sharing is caring!

Snapchat does not notify you when someone on your friend list blocks or removes you. However, you can check if someone removed you on Snapchat by checking your friend’s list, check your recent conversation chat and search for the person’s username in the app. Let’s go through each of those steps.

How To Tell If Someone Removed You on Snapchat?

Below are four ways to tell if someone removed you on Snapchat:

1. Snapchat Friend list

One of the simplest ways to know if someone has removed you on Snapchat is to see your friends list because when someone blocks you from Snapchat, they will stop appearing on your Snapchat friend list.

Firstly, you need to open Snapchat and log in to your Snapchat account.

Either go through your friend’s list or type the name of your friend in the search bar.

If you type the user name and they do not appear on the search bar, then they may have blocked you.

Another possibility is that they may have deleted their Snapchat account.

However, if you can still see their profile but cannot interact with them, as in you cannot send them a message or private snaps, then they may have removed or unfriended you.

In this case “add +” button will appear beside their name, depicting that the friend is no longer in your friend list.

2. Recent conversations chat:

According to tmcent, a good indicator to tell if someone removed you on Snapchat is to check your Snapchat message.

If you have Snap message them before then the conversation should still be there.

If they have deleted you from Snapchat, the chat will disappear.

Follow the below steps to tell if someone removed you on Snapchat:

  1. Go to the Snapchat app,
  2. go to the chat conversations tab with your friend and search for the friend you wish to know if they have blocked you.
  3. If the chat does not appear there, it is very likely that the person has blocked you or deleted their Snapchat user account.

3. Search for the person’s username

You can also search for the person by typing their username on the search bar.

If their username does not appear, the person may have blocked you or deactivated their account or even create a different account.

You can also see if the user has unfriended you. In this case, the person or their username will appear, but you will not be able to contact them unless they are on your friend list.

Now, as a last resort and another antidote to how to tell if someone removed you on Snapchat is to simply ask other Snapchat users to see if they can find the particular person username on Snapchat.

If the person can see your suspect’s account, then most likely you have been blocked by that person

If the person cannot see your suspect’s account, then it is very likely that they may have disappeared from Snapchat or have deactivated their account.

4. Create a new username

Another easiest way to check If someone has removed you on Snapchat is to create a new account. This requires extra work.

Create a unique username and search for the person’s name by typing in their name in the search bar.

The search bar is located at top of the screen.

Will the person know if you have removed them on Snapchat?

No, Snapchat does not notify a user if they have been removed by a user on Snapchat.

1. Can’t send messages

When you block someone on Snapchat, they can still view your chat page with them. However, they will not be able to send you a message. Messages sent will be viewed as unread.

You will also not receive any messages from the person.

2. Cannot receive Snaps

When you block someone on Snapchat, they can send you a Snap but you cannot view the Snap.

The person who sent the Snap will not know they have been blocked as the Snaps sent will appear as ‘delivered’.

Can you see whom you removed on Snapchat?

As said above, Snapchat, like other social media applications, gives its users the freedom to delete, add and remove friends.

You can easily unfollow or remove someone from your friend list.

If you remove Snapchat friends or unfollowed a list of people you can still view their Snapchat story and get them back and be friends with them again.

Simply choose the friend you removed and click on the + add a button beside their profile.

To view the removed friend, simply type their username in the search bar, and they will appear there as well.

However, if you have blocked them, you cannot see their profile or add them unless you unblock them first.

And this is the significant difference between blocking a friend and removing them.

Blocking a friend means they will not be able to view your profile and even chat history.

They cannot send you snaps and will not appear in Snap Map. You also cannot view their Snap status and won’t be able to see the person’s Snapchat score.

The person also cannot contact you.

However, if you remove them, they will still be able to view your profile and follower’s list but cannot view your snaps or have a conversation with you unless you add them back.

Can you add someone on Snapchat without them knowing?

Many people ask this question. However, our simple answer is No.

Snapchat notifies the user when someone sends them a friend request.

That is not the case when you remove someone because the user is not notified when you remove them.

So, no matter how many times you add a person, they will also be notified.

Many people have privacy settings in place that restrict you to add them in the first place. They get a notification in this regard, and if they see fit, they approve your friend request.

If they have a public profile that is open to friend requests and messages and snaps, then you can send them a message even if you are not friends with that person.
